New found land

Music by the ocean
sun tanned
aided by the suntan lotion
factor fifty five.
The sand crab grabs me in
a most peculiar place
mostly forgotten, but
just in case it’s not
it reminds me
how lucky I got
and I got lucky by the score.
Sea shells yell at me as if the sea
was trapped inside them,
beware of carpenters
walrus too
but alas
the oysters never heard that
and so they never knew.
it’s all Beethoven and Bach
the clipper
Cutty Sark
I am ‘dancing in the dark’
music by the ocean
